Signs, Signs & Window Views: Sedona


.
.
Since my last post featured
Sedona's Chapel of The Holy
Cross, I thought that
for Lesley's Signs, Signs,
today, I would
continue with
photos of the various
notices posted
around the grounds.
 .

Beavertail Cactus



After a warm, brisk
climb to the hilltop,
I could completely identify with
The Rocks!
 
 And for Mary t's Windows
 and Doors,  I also wanted to share shots of the home
 one sees when
 looking down into the valley below.

 Take note of the astronomical observatory. Can you imagine starting each day within sight of these brilliant red hills and ending it by gazing at the stars in that huge expanse of clear sky?
This might possibly be the closest we earthbound creatures get to
Heaven until Judgement Day, (and some of us aren't even sure of our chances then)!

I'm linking this post to Signs, Signs today. For more quirky signs from around the world, check out Lesley's meme at the link below....

Gloriously beautiful. Breathtaking, Lynette.

"Old and fragile" describes many of us these days! I laughed at the "DO NOT ENTER WHEN FLOODED" sign, but there are people who would do that (enter when flooded)!

That is a private home??!!! Fantastic! Fabulous view of earth and heavens!

This palce feels like it should be home or at least closer to home.

The owner of the house must be a seriously rich person.
The signs are wonderful, Lynette. I loved the scenery around Sedona. It's amazing.

Wow...I could live there!!! I love the signs. Beautiful landscape!

Genie said...

WOW! What a beautiful post. That architecture of the astrological center is out of this world. Loved the signs, too. I feel every bit as old as those rocks are this afternoon. Have been pruning the trees in the yard. Thank heavens I am thought. Genie

RedPat said...

Wonderful signs. It's hard to believe that is a home - it looks like an institution of some sort.

Nice wee pad there, did you try and wrangle a tour? ;o)

Gemma Wiseman said...

That observatory is like a grand mansion! What a view! And adore the sensitive appeal of the rock sign!

I've been to Sedona but not here. I would love to come here and see all the rocks.

Postcardy said...

I like the sign that tells you to observe the signs!

Lesley said...

Breathtaking scenery.
And the signs posted all around are interesting (and photogenic!)

Woody said...

I have mixed emotions on this - it's important to preserve the environment, but too many signs will have the opposite reaction. I like the 'Do not enter when flooded', kinda sad that people need to be told to use common sense.

like the messages on the signs

Pat Tillett said...

I just read your comment (at my place) about my comment here. It made me remember that I also posted a pic of a heart shaped cactus in Sedona. Here is the link. It's about the 8th photo down.

I love how the building shape echoes the rocks above it! Magnificent.

Pat said...

Beautiful pictures! The area will hopefully stay that way if people will obey all the signs!

Mad Kane said...

Wonderful photos!

I appreciate these thoughtful signs in language that is caring instead of authoritarian. I have a friend living in Sedona and you remind me that I need to go visit her again. I really is a lovely spot on earth. That "home" is a modern-day chateau. Glad I don't have to clean it.

Ella said...

so beautiful; I love the rock sign!
Be respectful, nature needs to be preserved~ Lovely!

Clytie said...

Wow, what wonderful signs! I love it that they gently remind people to love and respect nature.

And that observatory - wow. What an awesome place!

Fireblossom said...

Wow, look at that observatory!
